Find Out Romney VP by SmartPhone

This makes sense for a candidate nicknamed "Romneybot" for his mechanical delivery and lack of common ground with most human beings. Maybe his handlers think some of the "smart" will rub off on them, too. ;) This beats any other marketing ploy I've ever seen. I wonder how much Romney has invested in Smartphone?

And what could go wrong? Ummmmmmmmm . . . remember the previous times the Romney camp dabbled in technology, when they spelled "America" as "Amercia," "Sneak Peek" as "Sneak Peak," and the best . . . "Official" as "Offical." LOL
Reminder: Here on Snark Amendment

Via PC Mag
"Users of the app will be the first to get the news on the biggest presidential decision of the year through an instantaneous alert on the one device most people carry around the clock – their phone" . . .
As soon as the final decision is announced, app users will receive a push notification on their device, and can then share what a Romney press release called "the exciting news" among friends and family.
"The historic announcement is getting closer," Beth Myers, Romney campaign senior advisor, said in a statement. "With this new app, users can be the first to know the second member of America's Comeback Team."
Users will also have the opportunity to earn exclusive campaign gear.
The app's website builds up the suspense, saying "There's no telling when Mitt will choose his VP," but Myers said the decision will be announced "soon."

But as the Guardian UK points out, it all depends upon when Rafalca the Dancing Horse finishes at the Olympics

Apparently it all depends on how the Romney dressage horse Rafalca gets on at the London Olympics:
Romney is heading back to the United States from Europe on Tuesday and is expected to announce his vice presidential pick in the next few weeks. He’s likely to wait for his wife Ann to return from London, where she’s watching her horse Rafalca compete in the Olympics. Rafalca will compete August 2 and 3, a Romney spokesperson told ABC News on Monday.
The horse could also compete August 8 and 9, depending on how well he performs this week, and Ann would likely stay for that as well. Romney probably won’t announce his VP pick without his wife by his side.
There's a first: presidential campaign delayed by dancing horse.
